ROME (LifeSiteNews) — In a new interview with journalist Edward Pentin, a leading authority on COVID-19 has called on the Vatican to immediately drop its vaccine advocacy and mandates, warning that its position on the jabs makes it complicit in vaccine deaths and in violation of a critical code of bioethics.
Dr. Peter McCullough, a Dallas-based internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist who has 54 peer-reviewed publications on COVID-19 to his name and has testified in front of the U.S. Senate on the pandemic response, has also called on the Vatican to “immediately start a public interest campaign on vaccine injuries and vaccine deaths.”
McCullough spoke to Pentin over the phone, February 11, saying the Vatican will already “have to account for potentially hundreds of thousands of lives lost due to the vaccine worldwide” because it has violated the Nuremberg Code — a set of ethical principles that rule out any pressure, coercion or threat of reprisal for any medical treatment, especially if it’s new and experimental.
Despite the Vatican teaching that vaccination “is not, as a rule, a moral obligation and that, therefore, it must be voluntary,” it now mandates all employees and visitors — except for those attending liturgies and papal audiences — to be fully vaccinated or have recently recovered from the virus in order to enter Vatican territory.

Dr. McCullough, as an expert internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist, you have examined closely the cardiovascular complications of both the viral infection and the injuries developing after the COVID-19 vaccine. You have also produced 54 peer-reviewed publications on COVID-19. As someone therefore eminently qualified in this area, please could you briefly summarize what your concerns are regarding the vaccines, and the mRNA vaccines in particular?
The vaccines are now known to have a dangerous mechanism of action. That means that unlike other vaccines that are safe and effective, these vaccines, based on their biochemical and physiochemical properties, are expected to be dangerous. And what I mean by that is they are forms of genetic material, either messenger RNA, or adenoviral DNA, that are loaded onto lipid nanoparticles.
Lipid nanoparticles, by design, go to places in the body, go to organ systems in the body, where it would be deleterious to have genetic material delivered. So this is known, and it was known before the advent of these vaccines.
Papers from China studied lipid nanoparticles and it was known that they would go to the adrenal glands, they would go to the human ovaries, go to the brain, the heart, the bone marrow, other vital organs….Having genetic material delivered into these organs is extremely concerning, also because that genetic material is then taken up by these cells. These cells are not supposed to have that genetic material….
Now it’s been proven that several months later the genetic material is found in the lymph nodes, so it’s still there….
So what is the order of magnitude of risk, do you think, getting, say myocarditis and strokes and heart attacks from these vaccines? Are these really serious risks and could they become commonplace place because of the vaccine?
Let’s take death as the most serious concern. We’ll use the US, which has 330 million residents, as an example. If we look at all the vaccines combined per year in the United States, across all the multiple injections — and I personally have taken all the vaccines — it’s about 278 million shots per year. That’s a lot. It’s not everybody in the country, but it’s 278 million shots administered to at least a broad group of people.
The number of deaths that would be considered rare, and that we just have to live with, that can happen due to very unusual circumstances, like an allergic reaction, would be about 150 per year. So our Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) per year records about 150 deaths through all the years up to 2021.
What happened in 2021 is that by January 22 we had already hit 182 deaths … if we would’ve had a proper data safety monitoring board and proper human ethics committees in place looking at this, we would’ve stopped the US program in February and said, “Listen, there’s too many deaths.”
… As we sit here today, we are at 21,000 deaths in our CDC vaccine safety reporting system. So I am telling you, death under no circumstances can be considered rare. Now, the correct way to describe this is that this is the most dangerous and lethal biological product ever used in human history — period.
